PostHeaderIcon Campos de Luz grenache 2007

Last Friday, on a visit by one of the stores where they usually buy wine in Valencia and looking for a single variety of Grenache in the area of Aragon, I found a bottle of just over 3 euros Campos de Luz, Garnacha, 2007 and DO Cariñena..

The wines of this area have always been characterized by being distributed in bulk, but in the last decade, exports almost 70% of them to external markets and after my reading of a book on wine tourism in the area of Aragon and 
knowing the freshness and Grenache the fruit that gives the wines I decided to buy it.

It is a young wine of 2007 without aging with a label that evokes a carved fossil ammonites and highlights the word Light. Researching the net I discovered that this is a special edition Martin Esteban holds Alfamen (Zaragoza) commissioned by a specialized website called Vinergia.

The wine has a rich and brilliant deep ruby color in glass nose to stop already see a touch of fruit, fruit cup is agitated denotes maturity and a memorial to black pepper. The mouthfeel is dense and takes on a tone of strawberries, cherries and ripe blackberries, with very velvety on the palate highlighting its soft tannins.

It is a wine to enjoy a meal made with white meat some dry fruits such as raisins or plums (pork tenderloin stuffed with prunes, chicken stuffed with raisins and nuts, ...), and perfect to accompany a good paella valenciana.
